Dr. Romanov demonstrates what not to do when trying to increase your stride length. Many runners are concerned with covering more ground in less strides. This is simply an illusion. An example of this illusion is track phenomenon Michael Johnson. Many would argue that he has a short stride due to his “compact” turnover. That simply isn’t so. He has one of the longest stride lengths in track and field. Simply he covers more ground in the air! Instead of remaining on support so that you can...

Everyone has been curious about these new barefoot shoes from Vibram that came out in March. Some fed their curiosity early, others want to hear some feedback. We recently got our hands on a few pairs. For the most part, Dr. RomanovÂs advice is - try emÂ. They are fun and unique shoes. There are certain neuances that need to be sorted out, but that is a manufacturing issue. Dr. Romanov has mostly positive things to say about these unique barefoot slip-ons. So go ahead, try-emÂ.

As a follow-up to last week's analysis of Carl Lewis' technique, I am posting clips of Jesse Owens, Bob Beaman, and Michael Johnson as examples of good running form. Pay especially close attention to the way Jesse Owens starts his run, by leaning, and never straightening his knees. BobBeaman is an example of good form with a high range of motion; a lot of it has to do with build. If you witness closely, he pulls his hind foot on time, and is in Pose position almost as soon as he lands on...

When compared to jogging in terms of technique, it would seem that fast running or sprinting, is considerably easier to maintain. However, there comes a point where we cannot physiologically run any faster. The key is getting as close to that boundary as possible. The responsible factors in increased speed are lean and cadence. Keep your focus on lean (fall) and cadence (pull, pull, pull) and avoid trying to over reach or overextend your foot forward to give yourself a "larger"...

Aside from the many similarities, Pose Walking is different from running because when you extend your foot to land it is unavoidable that you will land ahead of the body. Your attention should be focused on quickly landing with your bodyweight on the ball of the foot. Some important rules to keep in mind are: Keep your knees bent keep your turnover high (fast walking) Arms are only for balance Do not lock your knees, or overextend with your foot. Increase your cadence if you would like to go...

One of Dr. Romanov’s most asked questions is “how do I know if I’m running correctly?” Apart from feeling no pain while you run, there are many different forms of perception that Dr. Romanov goes over which help you analyze your technique while you run. To maintain consistently good form you should focus on a tight high-frequency turnover, with the support foot landing directly beneath the body. POSE perception is this Wednesday’s highlight.

Running slowly is often harder to do than running faster. How so? Well, for one, running slowly still requires a high turn over. This has two purposes, first to use elastic compenents of our tendons (less so than sprinting but some none the less), and second to keep ground contact to a minimum to avoid injuries by not allowing you to load your knees and other joints with unneccesary weight. So, slow running or jogging is really running with a slight lean, a more compact range of motion, while...

As we know the Pose Method® is based on three major elements of running technique: Pose-Fall-Pull, which can be learnt through specific drills. In spite of their simplicity all these elements are fundamental at all levels of progression, from the beginner's to advanced. Here are the drills we are featuring today: Falling Drills: Run with the partner's slight push on your back. Run while trying to catch your partners arm infront of you (to touch with your chest), without bending at the waist!...

Today we would like to pay tribute to a moment in running history - the sub 4:00 min mile, by the legendary Roger Bannister. He did what others said couldn't be done. Doctors predicted that a runner's heart would explode if he ran a sub 4:00 min mile. Bannister decided to do it anyway. Doing so he correctly predicted that after he broke the momentous benchmark many would break it, many more times after him. He was right. Bannister was a truly amazing athlete and person with an accute intellect.

Pose Method and Carl Lewis Carl Lewis is arguably one of the great runners of the 20th century, especially in form. Even he however, does not have all the components of great technique. Carl Lewis has good form with a few simple flaws. If you notice on the starting blocks, Carl Lewis pushes-off, completely extending his leg to no avail. When on support at the starting blocks, the majority of your body-weight rests on your hands. When you release your hands, your support shifts to your feet....

Dr. Romanov examines a Pose Coach's training session with a former heel striker. In the beginning of the session you can see the pronounced heel strike landing. However, towards the end, although not perfect you can witness significant improvement in technique as Dr. Romanov points out.

Many runners do not have the luxury of being able to run on trails year-round. Many runners turn to the treadmill, however, this is not an easy approach and requires some adjustments. Here Dr. Romanov gives a brief explanation of how to avoid injury while running on a treadmill.

Here we examine Emil Zatopek's technique and particularly his forefoot landing. As you can see, as soon as he lands his thigh muscles tense for one frame. On the hand, the other competitors' thigh muscles stay contracted for more than 4 frames. This directly shows the unnecesary muscle exersion during active landing with no benefit. This weeks topic is active landing!

Hips control your ability to fall forward. Your hips’ stability and strength conditioning allows you to fall more freely and efficiently. It is one of the most important strength conditioning exercises in the POSE Method. The drills covered include moving the hips up and down from the push up position with varying difficulty. Dr. Romanov is aided by Debbie Savage in this presentation.

Dr. Romanov discusses the first step in running. Most runners dont pay much attention to the first step in running. However every journey begins with a single step, the most important step. Taking the first step is not landing, but rather leaning first, pulling, and letting gravity do the rest. See for yourself.

There are numerous ways to warm-up before a training session. The way you warm-up could depend on the weather, or the type of training you will be doing, etc. The possibilities are endless. Dr. Romanov presents a very basic warm-up routine that will prepare you for a run. The warm-up consists of three major parts which include 5 to 15 minutes of easy jogging, drills to set neuro-muscular patterns and enhance perception, followed by short strides to acctually prepare you for your run.

There is a popular misconception that stretching helps you during your runs by preventing cramps. However, this is incorrect, what does help you is the flexibility of your joints and ligaments in addition to your muscles' ability to relax on command. This allows your body's systems to work together in synchronization and in-turn helps you avoid pulling or hyperextending tissue.

Falling is the third element of proper POSE technique. It may seem simple, but that is rarely the case. As Dr. Romanov says at his clinics, "POSE is simple, not easy." Many times, common errors can include leaning from the waist or trying to fall from a heel strike landing. All elements of POSE must be executed each time you run. This week, Dr. Romanov covers leaning, body alignment, and falling from the POSE stance. (Featuring Debbie Savage)

Efficiency can be understood as the ability to apply oneself to something purposefully and correctly. For instance, lets look at cycling, an inefficient cyclist is easily spotted amongst the multitude of great riders at a popular race such as the Tour de France. The things most commonly evident are wasteful movements that detract from the rider’s efficiency. An example of these wasteful movements can be head bopping and excessive movement from side to side. Coming back to running, part of a...

Running at night is not as scary as it seems. While we do not recommend going trail running at night for obvious reasons! Dr. Romanov does recommend running at night on a familiar course in order to further develop your perception. The most obvious factor that is missing right away is eyesight, it's amazing what you start to feel and perceive when you aren't being guided visually! Try it for yourself tonight and let us know! This week we are running at night.

Many runners have a difficult time pulling their foot from the ground. Many times extra emphasis needs to be placed on pulling in order to learn it properly. If you need help perceiving when to pull your foot from the ground, the EZ Run Belt could help you achieve that. You can also run with stretchcordz attached to your ankles while you pull up, the EZ Run Belt however is a more efficient approach to doing so. The belt features 2 ankle straps, 4 resistence tubes (2 green - easy, and 2 red -...

There is a common misunderstanding about the function of toes in running. Their only purpose in running consists of maintaining balance/stabilization and perception of support. Pushing off actively with your toes leads to plantar faciitis. Dr. Romanov goes over the basics to help you avoid this painful injury and expend less energy!

The two challenges of uphill and downhill running can be the breaking point of any race to a runner. On the uphill you can expend all of your energy, and on the downhill you can injure yourself - with both factors leading to one thing - poor results during your race. Today Dr. Romanov briefly touches on the subject of uphill running with a quick demonstration as well as some sample footage from the ING Miami Marathon this past week.

Running related, lower-extremity injuries across all Military branches amount to annual costs of $100,000,000. As health professionals, it is imperative that we explore all possible advances in sports science and medicine that can provide a viable/scalable framework that we can use as an example to implement into standardized Military protocol. Currently, definitions of running have only described the action of running, along with some general tips. They have not however, offered any insight...
